MetsJunkies Game Recap: Mets 1 – Astros 0

In three innings pitched, deGrom struck out seven in three perfectly pitched innings. The two-time Cy Young Award winner really turnt it up a notch against the Astros, as the right-hander reached 102 MPH on the gun.

Pete Alonso went deep off of righty Nivaldo Rodriguez, a 23 year old with six games of Major League experience under his name. The home-run would obviously be an important one as it was the only run of the game.

Mike Montgomery followed deGrom with two superb innings in which he struck out two while giving up just one hit.

Jacob Barnes turned it around for himself as he struck out the side, now lowering his ERA to 9.00 this Spring. It’s important to remember that Barnes has practically had his back up against the wall since being signed very early in the off-season.

Let us not forget about Brandon Nimmo. While playing left field this evening, Nimmo went 2-3 and raised his batting average to .467 so far this Spring. That’s definitely a good look.

With the battle for potential second lefty spot in the bullpen, Tarpley followed fellow left-hander Mike Montgomery with two scoreless innings of his own.

Tarpley now has an ERA of 1.80 in the midst of this battle, however it didn’t end there. Familiar face Daniel Zamora, also pitched a scoreless inning while also picking up a save, his first of the spring. Zamora, did however surrender two walks in his inning.

The Mets will host the Marlins tomorrow at 1:10 PM EST with Marcus Stroman taking on Pablo Lopez.
